What You Can Expect

Singapore's Chinatown Trishaw Night Tour

Explore neon-lit Chinatown by trishaw on this enjoyable evening tour

Start your tour with a pickup from your centrally located Singapore city or Sentosa Island hotel. Board your air-conditioned coach with your guide and enjoy the views as you travel to Singapore’s downtown district. Alternatively, if you're staying at the Changi Village Hotel or Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel, make your own way to the starting point of your tour.

Begin in Chinatown, a prettily illuminated warren of markets, eateries and stalls bursting with activity. As you walk, learn from your guide about its origins as the first home of Singapore’s early Chinese immigrants. Savor the atmosphere and history of the bustling, temple-dotted lanes, and browse the myriad of stalls in the fascinating Night Market.

Stop at the Yong Gallery craft center for a demonstration of ancient Chinese calligraphy. Watch spellbound as an expert calligrapher converts your name or a quote into delicate Chinese letters, etching them on a paper fan that is yours to keep.

After a stop for a Chinese dinner at a Chinatown restaurant, board a 2-seater trishaw for a memorable ride. Be swept up in the captivating street theater around you as your cyclist-chauffeur pedals you through the Night Market and Chinatown to Clarke Quay.

Leave your trishaw here and enjoy a Singapore River cruise on a bumboat, a modern version of the old cargo vessels that once plied the river. Admire the illuminated skyscrapers and glimpse the iconic Merlion statue and the three towers of the Marina Bay Sands complex along the way.

Afterward, step ashore and enjoy a drop-off at your central Singapore or Sentosa Island hotel, where your tour ends. Or, travel back independently to the Changi Village or Crowne Plaza Changi Airport Hotel.

Excellent time, value and experience, do do do!

Good value. Really enjoyable trip from start to finish. Only downfall was a trip to a Chinese herbal shop for a soft sell,but that did spoil the trip and we did get a free sample. Chinese meal was very enjoyable but the rickshaw ride was the highlight for me. Would certainly plan this trip again if ever I return to Singapore .

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Great fun!! Guide had a great sense of humour and was really knowledgeable. Don't remember it being mentioned in the event info but also had a short visit to a Chinese apothecary. Nice touch that we were all given a pot of mosquito repellant! Tour ended at Clark Quay where you could stay for the evening we did this as it was really lively and we wouldn't have spent an evening there otherwise or get taken back to your hotel.

Thoroughly enjoyed this trip through Singapore. From the enjoyable Chinese meal to the Trishaw journey and the boat cruise this excursion is well worth while.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

A great night. Our guide was knowledgeable, dinner was good, and we had a bit of time to wander the shops in Chinatown. The trishaw ride was great fun - those guys really work hard. The boat ride gave us a different perspective on the waterfront, and we even got a surprise light show on the water.
